Two Peas in a Pod
Part 11


"I'm really sorry," he said for about the twentieth time.

Heero sighed silently.  "It was an accident, Duo.  Forget about it."

"But we've got to get go meet the guys for dinner in like an hour!"

"So it'll be a great excuse to avoid having my picture taken."  He lowered the bag of frozen corn to adjust the dishtowel wrapped around it.

Duo winced at the sight of the bruise decorating Heero's cheekbone.  "It, uh... well, it doesn't look tooooo bad.  I'm really --"

"I'm the one that asked you to get headphones, Duo."  He calmly held the bag back to his face.

"I probably didn't need to get the fancy noise-canceling ones.... They just happened to be on sale that day and..."

"I would only worry about them being a security risk, though I guess you've just proven you can handle someone sneaking up on you just fine."

"I'm so sorry --"

"Not sure what would happen if a smoke alarm went off or something, though."

"I'm not going to use them again."

Heero waved his frozen corn dismissively.  "Next time, maybe I'll just flash the lights to get your attention.  And perhaps if you're home alone, you should just go ahead and put on the speakers."

"I'm --"  Duo reconsidered his words at Heero's reproachful look.  "I'll kiss it better later?"

"Acceptable.  Now, you should go get washed up.  You've still got engine grease on you."

"Shit, what are we going to tell the guys?  People think we've got a weird relationship as it is, without us showing up saying I hit you."

"The guys will probably find it amusing, and anyone else can keep their comments to themselves.  It should be healed enough by Monday morning to not invite immediate reaction, and it's not like I don't have a dozen different perfectly normal ways of getting bruised up anyway."

Duo bit back his protest.  Not like he was going to suggest Heero cover it up with make-up or something.  Not like they even had any make-up in the house.  And, if he thought about it, who did he really expect to make small talk with Yuy anyway?  He stood from his seat at the table.  "I will absolutely make it up to you."

"You've never apologized for shooting me.  I'm not sure why a minor bruise rates a more extreme reaction."

"That was different!"

"Yeah, because it wasn't an accident?"

Duo paused.  "I'll kiss them better, too?  Better late than never."

"I prefer to be kissed here, thank you," Heero said, pulling Duo's lips to his own.  "Remember, the more of a fuss you raise over it, the more the guys will laugh at you.  Now get cleaned up."

I'm pretty sure Duo has a few other places he'd be willing to kiss Heero to make him feel beeter, but that will have to wait until they get home.

I'm sure the guys will be amused and not very surprised. They know Duo fairly well by now. ;-)

Well, hopefully Duo recovers by dinner and manages to spin a few good tales for them. =)

Oh yeah... don't let them smell the embarrassment; it's like blood in the water for teasing! Poor Duo; such a guilt complex. And Heero just keeps shooting it down. :D

Heero knows that Duo will be able to laugh it off... just as soon as he finishes being utterly mortified about it. ^^

Duo'll especially want to be cool around Wufei; he goes for the jugular. ^___^

Trowa tends to be my skewer of choice in situations like these. ^_^

Ah, poor Duo. But it is funny.
turnippatch From: turnippatch Date: January 6th, 2015 08:26 am (UTC) (Link)
He'll find it funny, too.  Soon.  Really.  Any minute now...
